The IMAs connect you to new revenue opportunities and millions of passionate music fans. That’s why career artists from around the world submit their best work to The Independent Music Awards.
Known for supporting artists who follow their own muse, The IMA program is for artists who are dedicated to making their living by making music. Submissions are judged for their unique artistry and originality, not press clippings or record sales.
There are more than 80 IMA categories. The program supports all styles of music as well as specialty categories including Love Song, Holiday Song, Social Action Song, Concept Album, Eclectic Album, Album Re-Issue and EP.
Unlike songwriting contests or battle of the band programs, The IMAs does not award cash or prizes. Winners and Nominees benefit from ongoing marketing campaigns, radio, print, online & broadcast promotions, performance and revenue opportunities.
